I have mixed feelings about it. Astrometrics off is gorgeous, but I feel like I'm moving even slower than I did before, and I can't stand travel time. I wish I could keep grid lines on, but keep the expanding star systems.
Also the lack of distance information at under 3AU is extremely annoying in exploration nebulas, as they pop in at 2.9AU. Hovering my mouse over them is inconvenient, and often dodgy at actually bringing up the information tooltip while moving. You can't tell at a glance what is 0.5AU away and what is 2.9AU away, so you might wind up flying towards something further away.
Personally I'd like these as HUD options. Throw in a grid line brightness slider for the OP of the thread in general feedback.
